Beautiful! But never tattoo a design too full of details. It will just look like a big black blur in few years.

I wonder if they add a new one every time they visit a new country. It's kinda cool.

Interesting, heartbeats with a double p-wave and a double t-wave as well as repolarization that with greater negative amplitude than the original positive depolariztion. Congratulations, you have a previously-undocumented abnormal heart rhythm.

This reminds me of a pair of Northface trousers (pants to you North Americans) I have now worn out - they had 'Never Stop Exploring' on the zip / fly. Good advice sewn in for the ladies ;-)
